Defense and the Federal Budget 2021

While partisanship in recent years has made crafting an annual federal budget an exhaustive tug-of-war, roughly one-fifth of that spending will likely again be apportioned for defense.

So what are the big issues expected to be addressed in defense spending this year?

At our upcoming breakfast briefing on defense and the budget for fiscal year 2021, we will discuss:

  • Shifting spending patterns to meet emerging threats
  • What will be added or cut by Congress this year?
  • Will an election influence the executive branch and congressional decisions on defense?
  • Does the prospect of a presidential change increase pressure to secure another big increase this year while it’s still more doable?

Join FiscalNote and CQ Roll Call for a live panel discussion in downtown D.C. on the national defense budget on February 27.

Featured Panelists:

  • Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3)
  • Matt Padilla, National Security Counsel, Office of Senator Tom Udall (NM)
  • John Luddy, Vice President of National Security Policy, Aerospace Industries Association
  • John Nichols, Partner, The Potomac Advocates
  • John Donnelly, Senior National Security Reporter, CQ Roll Call
